The Y-Princess and Y-Guides program has a rich history going back almost 85 years. This unique program is designed to strengthen the relationship between father and daughter/son. The emphasis is on spending regularly scheduled quality time together. It is time when the parent and child can give their full attention to each other. Time when they can learn to really appreciate and enjoy each other. Time when they can learn to relate in ways that will last a lifetime. This program is offered for fathers and daughters/sons ages 5-12.
